Books+Art: Friends of the Gallery Reading Group

Devonport Regional Gallery

Books+Art is the Gallery’s monthly reading group celebrating art and literature! 

Friends of the Gallery members meet on the third Monday of each month, with April and December dates sometimes varying to accommodate Easter & Christmas. The meeting time is 6.00pm – 7.30pm during Daylight Savings (October – March), and 5.00pm – 6.30pm during Standard Time (April – September).

Books are selected by members and at times connected with the exhibitions displayed at the Devonport Regional Gallery. The informal monthly meetings discuss the chosen book alongside the exhibition, providing an open and friendly environment. Meetings are accompanied by wine and cheese, and new members are always welcome. 

One of the advantages of joining the Friends of the Gallery is that the membership of Books + Art reading group is included in the membership fee.
